This workshop is designed for current owners of the Leica M11 and will teach practical skills to enhance their experience with the camera, with the help of two professional Leica Akademie Instructors.
Scope: This session will help ensure that you are making the most out of the capabilities of the Leica M11. Users of the M10, M10-P, M10-R, M10-Monochrom system will also benifit from the session, but the focus will be on the menus of the M11. Leica instructors will lead you through understanding the menu system, recommended settings, and step by step tips to help you increase the accuracy of your metering and speed of focus.
The workshop is arranged with a flexible schedule, so the group can organically discuss and share feedback, based on their unique areas of interest or desired areas of improvement. Having personal access to a seasoned Leica instructor will give you an unparalleled opportunity to ask tough questions and receive practical attention.
In order to put theory into practice, shooting exercises will be assigned throughout the workshop for people to photograph at home, giving you the chance to acquire expert advice while in the field – expanding your skills, working techniques and confidence while shooting.
There will be a 1-hour break toward the middle of class.
Attendance is strictly limited to 8 participants.
Topics covered include:
- Introduction to M
- Going Beyond (A)perture Priority
- Understanding Metering
- Customization & optimization for different photography needs
Who should take this workshop?
Have you owned your Leica M for a while, but find that you are still stuck in automatic mode? Do you feel like you are not getting the most out of your camera? This workshop is for you! Owners of all experience levels will benefit from this program.
Though this workshop is to cover all M Owners skill sets, it is recommended that registrants have a basic understanding of camera technology navigation: Basic knowledge in photography will help. For those whom have never been formally trained in photography or a novice, (only using automatic), we strongly suggest a per-requisite workshop in Photography Fundamentals.
